Mehta: Sam Darnold made some sparkling plays Sunday, but he should have taken more consistent shots downfield

Darnold knew exactly where he wanted to go this time, giving a quick look to his left before firing a bullet to the right to Powell, who easily beat linebacker Raekwon McMillan on a 28-yard catch and run for a touchdown. Darnold’s two different decisions on the similar play design yielded two different results. (The score came right after Darnold led rookie tight end Chris Herndon, who correctly sat in zone coverage, too much on an incompletion).
